- What are the issues of spiritual power, disempowerment, self-empowerment in the book? What did the author eventually realize about his spiritual teachers (from the first half of the book)?
- What are ways you think religious or spiritual traditions and groups can help you, and how might they hold you back? Is this a simple issue for you, or a complicated one? And why? Have you already had to face this in your life? If so, how?
- What is an example of poverty described in the book? Why do you think the author mentions poverty? What do you think is the relationship between the state of our societies, how people treat each other, and spirituality?
- What was it like to read about religions in other parts of the world? Did this make you feel more curious about them, more accepting of them, or some other way? Why? Do you have friends from other parts of the world, or who practice a religion different from yours? What are the benefits of being open to people different from yourself?
- The author described a moment during meditation when he heard a friend's voice inside his head, and he later discovered it was a friend who had already died. What was her message? Have you ever had an experience like that? What are your thoughts about communicating with people after they've departed? (Note: It's perfectly ok if you don't believe in some of the things in the book - you are not required or asked to believe anything, which is one of the points of the book.)
- Who (from the afterlife) did the author hear from during his first mediumship session with Jude? What was it about Jude's description of this person which identified him to the author?
- One of the essays at the end discusses the nature of "fear" and how to work with it during OBE training. How does this apply to other parts of life? Have you ever had to face fear in your life, perhaps when trying to learn something new or meet new people? How did you work with it, or what did you learn?
- One of the essays discusses warning signs to watch out for when choosing a spiritual teacher or group. Discuss one or two of those warning signs which interested you or made sense to you. How did you feel after reading this essay, or how do you think it will prepare you for various aspects of your life in the future?
